French onion soup that you can eat with your hands! Crostini rounds topped with caramelized onions and cheese will be your new FAVORITE appetizer.
Mike is 100% responsible for discovering this amazing way to roast nuts. I would never have tried it because it has sage in it, in fact the first time I made them, I only used half of the sage and was certain I wouldn’t like them. I’m pretty good at looking at a recipe and […]
I love having a simple appetizer that I can take to a party or just eat on the patio with a glass of wine. While my Old Bay Cheese Wafers are awesome, I was looking for something different. I seem to be on gruyère kick lately so a cracker with gruyère was just what I […]
You have to try this AMAZING Tomato Tart. Cheese, herbs and a flaky crust topped with sliced tomatoes combine for an impressive appetizer or meal.
Savory Thumbprint Cookies with Bourbon Tomato Jam are the perfect appetizer for any event, great at room temperature and sure to surprise when they bite into a savory cookie filled with a spicy bourbon flavored tomato jam.
One of my favorite recipes from Dorrie’s Cookies is not what I would consider a cookie at all but a savory cheese wafer made with Old Bay seasoning. I don’t know if all parts of the country are as familiar with Old Bay as we are around here, but this is more common than catsup […]
One more weekend of March Madness. So many of the games this year have been nail-biters but that doesn’t mean you don’t need some snacks to get you through. These sausage balls are my favorite for breakfast but are also great for game day. Since they’re made with almond flour, they’re low carb and gluten […]
March Madness is here! While I enjoy football, having lived in Kentucky growing up, I’m really more of a basketball fan. When Kentucky is playing, my husband likes to watch the games at home, so appetizers are a must. Here’s a quick and easy one that you can eat hot or at room temperature that […]
While bacon wrapped munchies may be the number one favorite for March Madness, chicken wings are a close second. But of course we can’t just have plain Jane ones, you need to try Tequila Chicken Wings. I used a good quality Tequila so that you really get the flavor from the Tequila without the alcohol. […]
Pizza Bites are an easy snack with a tortilla base that you can easily adapt. Great finger food for a party or game night.
With the long days of summer, we enjoy our Friday nights sitting out on the patio with appetizers. Most of the time, it’s nothing fancy or complicated, but something to nibble on while we enjoy a glass of wine and the company of family and friends. Many times, it’s just cheese and Italian meats from […]
Time for another appetizer Friday post. We were all together for the weekend but we weren’t sure when everyone would arrive so appetizers were the perfect solution. I assembled these earlier in the day and as we sat out on the patio with cocktails, I put these in the oven. I had some leftover rotisserie […]
You can’t go wrong when you wrap anything in bacon and Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites are no exception. Especially when you add a little Boursin and jalapeño. Surprisingly not greasy because they’re baked on a wire rack.
Pimento cheese is a Southern staple that’s hard to beat. Cream cheese and chipotles transform this into a smokey version that is even better than the original.
We haven’t had an Appetizer Friday for a while, so before Christmas I brought it back and tried out several appetizers for dinner. These stood out head and shoulders above the rest, so much so that I made more to take to a friends house. When something’s wrapped in bacon, it’s hard to go wrong, […]
If you can’t be in France you can still enjoy mini Croque-Monsieur appetizers. Your guests will love this take on a French classic.
Goat Cheese and Fig Tart is a quick and simple tart you can make in 10 minutes. Appetizer or dessert, either way you choose, you’ll love the combination of goat cheese and figs.
Sometimes on Friday’s we don’t have a traditional dinner but just eat appetizers. It gives me a chance to experiment with a couple of things and if one doesn’t turn out we generally have a couple of fall backs. This week I experimented with a wonderful peach salad and these simple sausage cups that we […]
An easy Spinach and artichoke dip that can be made ahead for any social gathering. Perfect for Game Day!
A friend commented that there had not been any appetizer posts recently so we went all out last week for Appetizer Friday. All were amazing and will be shared soon. I will start with goat cheese pimento cheese dip. Natalie loves goat cheese and we are blessed with a local dairy, The Goat Lady Dairy, […]
